I even give him credit for saving the entire group after the alarm goes off, where Lilly just focuses on Larry.
I've always considered it a gradual decline in his humanity over the 3 months the group's been surviving that lead to his current attitude. I don't really think he's a power hungry megalomaniac, at least anymore than Lilly was, but think that he TRULY thought that he knew what was best for the group. He was a total bastard to her after he killed her dad (and I felt like crap because I helped) and he's also pretty stupid at certain points (telling about the girl in the street, or saying he was proud of you for dropping Ben). He's a stupid redneck though, and lets his emotions get the best of him at times.
I pretty much forgave him after I talked him down on the train because I finally understood why he was acting like such a douche lately (he didn't leave me to die in the barn or under the door, but I got fed up with his crap during the supply run. I also shot the girl). When he said he kept blaming himself for Shawn and said that he knew that sooner or later it would catch up to him, that cast his actions in a different light to me. He was just scared of losing his only family in the world and thought that because he made one mistake on Hershal's farm that his wife and son would pay for it. Knowing that he's blaming himself for every bad thing that happens to his family made me understand why they seemed like the only thing he cared about. And when I was able to make him see that he was wrong without having to fight him, I forgave him when he went to deal with his son and stop the train. The same reason I forgave Ben at Crawford. He was willing to face his mistakes and take responsibility for his actions. He volunteered to find Clem without a second thought, so I'll be glad to have him watching my back in Episode 5.
You traitor, i thought you were a fellow Kenny lover :P
Seriously though how is Kenny stupid for saying what happened in Macon? He is trying to tell Lilly what Macon is really like and how dangerous going in there really is. She's not the one taking the risk, she needs to know. And although i didnt actually kill Ben, im not suprised he said he was proud of you for doing so. The guy had recently killed his family and he probably felt some sick satisfaction in him being gone as im sure many other players had for his role in Carely's death. And we didnt even know her that well!
To all you darned Lilly fans, you can lose everyone's loyalty. Do the wrong things and Christa and Omid will leave you on your own as will Ben. And at least its possible to get Kenny on your side, so matter how kind and thoughtful and helpful you are to Lilly and no matter how you treat her dad, she still absolutely screws you over and leaves you to die, stealing you're only mode of transport and leaving you with the people you obviously hate so much (as well as a person recently bit) So much for her friendship
